You can do it with pure javascript which is considered to be faster because no transcripting from jquery to javascript happens in the background.

var str = 'ex Recommended Score [.453 - Low]';
var substr = str.split('[');
str = substr[1].substring(0,4);

leakim971 beats my solution hard in the face....  but here is my two cents...looping

Check out the jsFiddle I created: http://jsfiddle.net/kEk8y/1/

Here was my code:
//This will only work if there is one number in the field...
//Fails hard with multiple number values in single field
var fields = $('.fieldsToSearch');
    
$.each(fields, function(index, elm){
   var text = $(elm).text(),
        arr = text.split(' ');
    
    for(var x=0; x < arr.length; x++){
        if(isNaN(arr[x])){
            arr.splice(x,1)
            x = x -1;
        }
    }
    
    //set the old value, just for safe keeping and update text
    $(elm).data('oldValue', text).text(arr[0]);
});
